Quest Courses – Spring 2023 / History and Philosophy / EXPLORATIONS IN PHILOSOPHY AND LITERATURE

Coordinators: Larry Shapiro, Steve Allen, Jane Lubin

Our focus will be on how philosophy approaches particular issues as opposed to an in-depth analysis of specific philosophers.

Beginning this Spring, we are combining the courses ”Great Conversations” and “Explorations in Philosophy” into a single course. For each session, we will read an essay, classic short story, or excerpt from a play. Each reading is selected for the stimulating ideas that it presents and its insights into social relations and human nature.

We expect to continue the tradition of both courses, promoting lively and enlightening discussions.
